Well, the hubby has been on quite a roll lately! That, or he just got tired of hinting around that he's been wanting to try chicken tacos, so he took matters into his own hands. I had to laugh when I saw the blog he found this recipe on--it's called "Building Camelot" and the blogger's slogan is "Helping men become better husbands and fathers". Hmmmmm.... (Rest assured...I'll be bookmarking this page for him, just in case he ever feels compelled to take some of this guy's advice!)
I'm not going to lie...Mexican food is not exactly my favorite food...kind of ironic since my husband is Hispanic, but I'm always open to trying everything at least once. I'm definitely more of a fan of "Americanized Mexican food" (ie: fajitas, quesdadillas, tacos, etc). My husband said that this was incredibly easy to throw together--another recipe that could be started at the beginning of the day and ready by dinnertime!
Crockpot Shredded Chicken Tacos
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1 medium onion, chopped 1 green pepper, chopped 1 packet taco seasoning 16 ounces salsa Flour tortillas, corn tortillas, or taco shells
Place the chopped onion and green pepper in the bottom of the crockpot. Place the chicken on top of the onions and peppers. Mix the taco seasoning with the salsa in a separate bowl and pour mixture over chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs. Shred chicken in crockpot and serve on tortillas (or taco shells).
***Top with your favorite taco "toppings"...we used lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream. YUM!***
If you were to look up the word "picky" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of my husband off to the left. Growing up, I was exposed to all sorts of different foods and encouraged to experiment with different flavors, but after meeting my husband, I somewhat locked myself into an eight to ten meal rotation and was reluctant to deviate. I have since given birth to two of the least picky eaters on the face of the Earth, thus inspiring me to transform my cooking style. I know many people, like myself, lead such hectic lives, so I strive to find recipes that are quick and easy--especially those that you can whip up with ingredients that you ordinarily have on hand!
A bit about me...I married my husband, Marcus, on June 1, 2003 and we welcomed our son Jacob on March 22, 2005. Our daughter, Madeline, was born on March 1, 2008. I stay home with the kids for the most part, but also work occasional shifts as a registered nurse at a local hospital. I truly hope you enjoy my blog. A special "thank you" to my sister, Sarah, for giving me the idea! Her creativity is hard to live up to, but I'm a very determined person and hope to make her proud :)
